If I'm not completely mistaken: you know that this usage should (at least 
under all sensible terms) allocate a list on the stack and thus local to the 
function and not on the heap, unless boost does some mumbo jumbo that I know 
nothing of like starting the list with refcount=2? I don't think that's what 
you want...

But for your boost usage, I have absolutely no idea! Why not write the Python 
wrapper directly in C? Just as easy, probably. And from what my experience is 
with using SWIG and SIP: much less errorprone...
